- Wedding: October 2013
Hi ladies! While I waste away in the house waiting for my real ring to arrive I’ve been looking at the dresses I tried on the other day and trying to figure out what I like better. The assistants all lamented that I loved EVERYTHING so I’m in need of external advice!
I have no bust whatsoever to speak of, my waist is very small and I’m petite at 5,2″. I do have heavier hips/a sizeable bum which my Fiance loves but I’m not sure about showcasing on my wedding day. I was thinking of possibly going the custom route and getting a dressmaker or jasmines bridal shop to make me a dress with favourite elements.
I’d appreciate your votes and your comments bees as to what I should be looking at. Here is what I have tried on so far, and they are all very different!
Dress number 1: I love the straight line of the bust. The bolero is too big and I’m not sure about it.
Dress number 2! I love the halter neck, sash, the nipped waist and the big without being poofy skirt:
Dress number 3! Loved the lace and surprised myself with how much I liked the shape, but maybe too plain?
Dress number 4! I liked this one but the photos really don’t show how lovely it was. The shimmer on the neckline and waist was unreal! Loved the cowl neckline with the second layer underneath with the beading.
Dress 5! I did really like this but thought it was maybe too simple/not enough of a statement?
One thing I did worry about was being swamped by a big skirt as I’m so small but the lady in the first shop told me that often it is the smaller people who look better in those types of dresses. She said she got a lot of Asian ladies with small structures buy similar dresses and they looked amazing. I found that quite interesting. She also said I have a long measurement between my neck and bust so I really need straps/something going on up there or I look very bare and naked. An example:
Obviously I’ve only been in two shops for a few hours, I have a lot more looking to do! However, I need to have a better idea of what I’m looking for or it will be a pretty aimless search. Vote away!
ETA: Keep in mind all of these dresses were too big for me and clipped at the back. The clips at the second shop were useless so those dresses don’t look quite like they should.
